Sri Lanka uses hail to its advantage

MIRPUR, Bangladesh — Sri Lanka will see its fifth final appearance in global competition after beating the West Indies in the World Twenty20 in the semifinals. While the West Indies fought poorly at the beginning of the match, Captain Darren Sammy credits “Divine intervention” for the unlikely match.

When chasing 161 for victory, holders for the West Indies were 80 for four in the 14th when hail reportedly the size of grapes saturated the playing field. Although the hail eventually stopped, further play was prohibited, leaving the West Indies trailing behind 27 runs according to the Duckworth-Lewis method.
